disturbing story

I have a disturbing story that I must tell.

It's disturbing beyond measure.

So stop reading right now if you don't want to read about
something quite horribly disturbing.

*Can you tell I've been reading Lemony Snicket?

This morning I went out to take care of my chickens.

Fed them.
Watered them.
Gathered eggs.

I came inside and put the eggs away in the refrigerator,
then got distracted doing something else.

Just a few minutes later I went to the bathroom to brush my teeth.
As I was flossing,
I was astonished at the smell of my breath.
Never had I ever noticed my own bad breath before.
It was, for lack of better words, rather crappy smelling.
I was horrified.

So I went to throw away my floss and alarmingly noticed....
chicken poop on my fingers.

Oh yes.

That happened.
To me.

So I am now bonded even closer to my feathery flock.

But thank goodness it wasn't really my breath.

*And for the record, I normally DO wash my hands
immediately after taking care of them.
And after that incident, you can bet your bright yellow egg yolks I
will never forget again.

LOL!!! I think I can laugh a little harder then the rest, as I could TOTALLY see that happening to me. :P

I am catching up on blogs and read some of your past blogs. I have missed life at Lori's house!! IT is always interesting. :D

And I am loving the Laura Inglas impressions. What a great idea!! I wish I could buy eggs from yous guys. I wish we could have chickens! But our postage stamp lot with 3 dogs would not allow it. :P

K, off to the next thing. Good to hang together for a little while. :)
